Thank you, Marla for all that you do.
Marla is the co-founder of Safe-Cat foundation and a volunteer at the Contra Costa County Animal Shelter in Martinez. She's been successful in rescuing hundreds of cats and kittens from the shelter and getting them adopted or into safe foster homes.
Marla knows first-hand the results of pet over population. Investing $50 in a license plate could save thousands of animals from being put to sleep. 7500 seems like a small number to start this program. We should be able to get 7500 orders for license plates from the East Bay alone.
Many residents of San Ramon have cats and dogs, bunnies, hamsters, and other pets. I'm sure most pet owners in San Ramon take responsibility for their pets and have them spayed or neutered, but many people in other parts of the state don't or can't afford to. That's why a program like this is so valuable, and really painless. It doesn't cost much and takes hardly any effort to go to the [Web Link CA Spay Plate website] and fill in the online form.
Everyone, please get the word out about this great new program and support it yourself.
